Hugo nominated SFF short-stories

with one comment

Via Neil Gaiman’s blog, links to the full list of sci-fi/fantasy short stories nominated for this year’s Hugo Award. Devoted fans of this genre would have not doubt already read them. I consider myself as a big fan too, but as usual, am late to the party.

Anyhow, must read, all of them. The one I enjoyed most is Tim Pratt’s ‘Impossible Dreams’;it combines sci-fi with a passion for cinema and even a dash of romance thrown in.

The post is reproduced below after the jump.
